These Silky Oak bobbins are beautifully hand turned and finished, absolutely guaranteed to not mar your material/thread in any way. The bobbins in the photograph are fairly typical, if you order more than one there will be variations in the grain and color.
The finish is my normal finish, that is sanded down to 600 grit, soaked in Tung oil, which is a natural drying oil and buffed through various grades of compound to 6000 grit and a final buff with carnauba wax to give a high sheen and durability.
Silky and smooth and much slimmer than the average bobbin, these are the result of more than just a few requests for a slimmer bobbin.
If you like any of the timber any of these bobbins are turned from but you would like them made to suit you, for example, just a little longer, or a little slimmer or a different shape on the head or all of the above please let me know and we can work something out to suit you. Or if you would like a larger quantity, 10 or more, let me know and we can work out a better price.
As always I strive to produce an heirloom quality item and I'm quite sure that you would be happy to own and use these bobbins.
